Laura says of the history of this building :

Le fort du Murier fût construit de 1873 à 1878, c’est le fort le plus puissant de la ceinture fortifiée de Grenoble. Il contrôlait l’accès du bassin grenoblois par la vallée du Grésivaudan.

Il est construit selon les principes du général Séré-de-Rivières, et le fort du Murier est un des seuls forts de France à respecter les instructions du général, le terrain permettant d’adapter parfaitement le fort «d’école» ici.

Il a été racheté par la ville de Gières suite à l’abandon de l’armée en 1978.
